I Did Get a Pedicure!

A Me day update!

I had a very nice Me day.

First stop was at the theater so I could purchase my tickets. I could have bought them later but I didn't feel like standing in line.

Then, I went right to the nail salon. Yes, I did get my pedicure. It was lovely. My feet are very happy now with sparkly, light purple polish.

After my pedicure I stopped at the coffee shop where I got a Dark Chocolate, Caramel Iced Coffee. I wanted Mocha, Coconut but they were out of coconut. Oh well. Mine was delicious.

I took my coffee and did some window shopping. Bookstore, Hobby Lobby, Claire's (I was looking for a cute anklet to show off my fancy feet but I wasn't willing to spend that much cash on it. Oh well.), Bath and Body Works, JC Penny, Cato, Rue 21.

I wanted half the clothes at these places. Boo, money. Hey, at least I got my pedicure! :)

After all that it was time for my show. I had a coupon for popcorn and soda and I used it. (A luxury for me. I Rarely buy things at the theater. WAY too expensive.)

I enjoyed every minute of The Phantom of the Opera. (A show that I basically have memorized.) It was totally worth it to see it on the big screen. Since I'm a big fan of the actors who played both the Phantom and Raoul.

After Phantom I stopped by Taco Bell to get J a burrito, then grabbed some gasoline and headed home.

It was a very nice evening.

I'm just going to enjoy the memories. I'm sure that's all I'll have to get me through the next few months before I get another Me day. Haha.

My Day

It's here! It's here! My Me day!

Pro Tip: Don't plan a Me day when you're broke.

I have been saving cash here and there so I would have spending/splurging money when Kid and I went home to PA this year. Unfortunately our annual PA trip is not happening this year.

(I blame the move. Boo. I'm so upset. Anyway, that's a different story.)

So! I have some extra cash. I'm so glad. I'll be using my PA trip cash for my Me day. Well, some of it. Not all of it.

Today when J gets here to watch Kid I will go. I'll put some gasoline in the car and then head out.

On the agenda:
- A coffee shop coffee
- Wandering around Hobby Lobby, looking for Father's Day craft ideas for Sunday School.
- Maybe a stop at Cato.
- A quick dollar item at BK or Arby's for dinner. (I don't care to go places and eat alone.)
- Possibly a pedicure. (Woot!)
- Ending the evening watching The Phantom of the Opera at my theater.
        Have I seen The Phantom of the Opera before? Yup. Have I seen the version playing tonight at the theater? Yup. Do I own it on DVD? Yup. Am I going anyway? Yup. Hadley Fraser and Ramin Karimloo on the big screen? Yup.

If you have a Cinemark theater nearby I absolutely and completely recommend catching this. I believe tonight is the last time it will be played in theaters. GO SEE IT! You Will Not Regret It.

I'm so excited!

Yard Sale Thoughts

I have "junk."

Lots of "junk."

I have Years worth of Kid's clothes. I have clothes I haven't worn in ages. I have DVD's no one watches. I have books no one reads. I have coffee cups coming out of my ears.

It's time.

It's time to just do it.

It's time to have that yard sale.

Since we moved (Did I mention we moved? I know it's been a while.) we now have a nice large car port under which a lot of yard sale stuff would fit nicely.

My problem is that I've never had a yard sale before. Ever. I have no idea what is an appropriate price for certain items. This is where you come in. How much would you be willing to pay for these items? They're all in very good condition.

Is .25 too much to ask for a Winnie the Pooh onesie in very good condition? Is .50 or .75 too much or too little for 12 month size pair of baby boy jeans? What about 3t or 4t size boy jeans? I really have no idea.

My clothes I'm less concerned about. .25 for a shirt is cool with me. I just want them gone.

Seventeen bajillion coffee cups . . . Again, .25 a piece? Too much? I'm so lost.

The DVD's are basically going to be a buck a piece, I'm pretty sure on that one.

I'm also considering a bake sale on the side. Kid wants to sell lemonade. We'll see how that goes. Right now I just need a little guidance with pricing.

I thank you in advance for any help you might offer.

What would YOU be willing to pay for these items? Do Not Hesitate to tell me if my prices are too high. I need to sell things. Not bring it all back in my house.

Thank you!
